Disabled Veterans, displaced by recent cutbacks in VA assistance to homeless and disabled veterans in need of work training will sell T-Shirts designed by MSN Slate's Cagle Cartoon Artists. The shirts, on sale this week, will support the creation of a disabled veteran run sheltered workshop to be based in Chicago, Illinois. The workshop will create jobs and training opportunities for disabled and homeless participants.

Partnering with MSN Slate's Political Cartoon group, Cagle Cartoons, Veterans at Work is able to sell top quality and topical political and entertainment t-shirts to the public through the site: ...The shirts will have special appeal to anyone now active, previously associated with, or supportive of members of the military. But, there is a special section for residents of Chicago and a couple of shirts for Cubs fans everywhere.

The t-shirts will be custom produced for each buyer using new digital transfer technology.

ALL proceeds will go to creating a workshop that will re-employ veterans eager to re-enter the workforce.

The veterans are asking for a hand-up, not a hand-out to assist America's heroes. No donations will be accepted. The group hopes to procure contracts that will make it self-sustaining in the future--free of any government budget considerations. is a non-goverment owned enterprise.
